Only He Can Paint Such A Beautiful Sky

October 15, 2012

Good morning on this fabulous Autumn day.  It was in the sixties all through the night, and today we will be enjoying temps in the 70's.  Oh my, I just love it!!!  Sometime today, Pogo and I will have to get outside and enjoy this gorgeous day.  Tomorrow will be wet and twenty degrees cooler.

We have been noticing a few meeses coming into the house lately.  This morning, I stopped at a store and bought one of those "plug in critter repellent" things that you just plug into the outlet and it is supposed to ward off all those unwanted critters.  We shall see.  If this works, I will buy more of them and scatter them about the house.

This week Eddie is going to come over and paint our number sign and part of one the stone posts at the front of my driveway with a bright neon color.  I'm hoping that this will help me find my driveway when I come home at night.  My driveway is tucked between trees and very tall hedges, and it is very hard to find in the dark.

Today, I have a rose for Mandarin Orange Monday.  I'll show the orange rose first, then I'll post the original flower.  It was actually a deep pink, but I tweaked it a bit to make it orange. 



Today is also when Su and I will be posting Parts 3 & 4 of our October collab kit "Goth n Gore".  I surely hope you can have some fun with this kit.  Here is my preview and your download links.

When you have finished downloading, you'll want to hop on over to Su's website and pick up her two parts.  Su hasn't been feeling so well lately, so she will most likely post a bit later today.  While you're there, do take a moment to say thank you.  It is so very appreciated.  Here is Su's preview.  Doesn't this look awesome?


It's amazing how all our parts to the collab kits work so well  together.  When we start each month, all we share is the color palette, the logo and the theme.  We don't see what each other has made until it is time to post the kit on our blogs.  I must say, "Great minds think alike!"  We do make a great team.

Want to see how pretty the sky was this morning at 6:26?  Notice the white spot on the lower half on the right side (near the tree) of the photo?  That's either a star or a comet, not sure which.  Is this not a pretty sight to start your day?


Now I have to get busy and bake a cake.  It's one of the dwarfs' birthday, and she is also Pogo's daytime sitter.  I'll have to let Pogo help make the cake.  Hmmm, what can he help with?  I know.  He can read the directions to me.  That will be a big help.  (Doesn't everyone let their furry kids help with the cooking?)

That's it for today folks.  Gots to get this cute little butt of mine moving.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I think the little white spot is Venus ... I can see Venus here in the mornings and it is very bright this time of year. And, I agree, what a beautiful sky to get up to ...

So how did you do it ... change that pink rose to a gorgeous orange rose. I have brought up oranges in my pictures, but can't recall ever being able to completely change it's color so successfully. Very cool ... did you use one of your new software programs? Fun, Fun ...

My Izzi likes to help me cook all of the time. Her job is to taste and let me know if it is good. She loves everything I give her so it makes me feel more confident in my cooking ... Hmmmmm. My cats volunteer for that job as well, but they are pickier about what they will taste.

It is almost five already (don't know where the day goes) and I have a little boy cat talking to me about being time for dinner. Guess I better go feed the gang. Hope you are able to get rid of the meeses ... could get a cat. Then they would disappear in a hurry, just sayin'. Have a wonderful rest of your day Edna ...

I think I like the rose better in orange - but then I love the color orange...

Good idea to paint the post of your driveway entrance in a neon color. May be you could attach on the posts some reflecting stripes or such, like e.g. you have also for bikers on their coats?

Pogo surely will enjoy helping you with the cake, LOL.

Have a great day
Hug

Edna, your rose images are beautiful. I like that you have zoomed in on just the rose itself - the shape is lovely. I like the orange one best, of course - i would like to touch it. It has so much depth, more than the pink i think (?). Beautiful!
Thank you for being part of Mandarin Orange Monday:)
And good luck with the creatures!
